You get what you pay for

Christopher F., Newegg
21 June 2015
  • Summary: If you have internet that is greater than 4 Mbps you aren't going to reap any benefits of that greater speed with this. I get about 65 Mbps at my home and I only get 4 Mbps from this device. It works fine, no loss of connection, and I get 4 bars from a couple walls away from my router.
  • Pros: -Cheap -Decent Range -Okay Signal
  • Cons: -Not worth it for downloading/gaming -Okay Signal

Functions as You'd Expect

William P., Newegg
22 April 2015
  • Summary: You get what you pay for - a small, low performance dongle for an okay price.
  • Pros: Incredibly small and portable - easily transportable (driver disc isn't as mobile though)
  • Cons: Incredibly small and portable - you can loose it if you're not careful. A permanent location might be a good idea. Speed - Slower than most. I haven't quantitatively measured it, but it functions at only 40% of the capacity of one of my more powerful 300Mbps/35dBM antennas. Range - Quite poor. Go...

works for short range but TP-LINK TL-WN722N is better for longer range.

  • Summary: these work just fine but TP-LINK TL-WN722N works for longer range. We use them at our company... when these units could not connect at about 100 ft, TP-LINK TL-WN722N worked just fine..

Decent

Marcus, Amazon
12 March 2015
  • Summary: The performance is 100%... gave it 3/5 stars because it isnt plug n play. Drivers need to be installed (Not a problem if u really are going to plug and forget... not good for moving from PC to PC)

the reception of this is rather poor. With that said

Chris Morgan, Amazon
12 March 2015
  • Summary: it does work, but unless the router is near by, the reception of this is rather poor. With that said, the fact that it is so small should not be a surprise.

For Desktops without a wireless card

Alexis A., Newegg
26 December 2014
  • Summary: Despite the cons, this is still an excellent product for its price. I know that sacrifices have to be made when you have a product at such a low price and I was willing to accept that.
  • Pros: Cheap wireless adapter, small, and fast. Got this for my parent's computer and so far its been working great for their needs which mainly consists of email and facebook.
  • Cons: When I was using it on my build for about a week, I did notice that after a couple of hours my connection would drop till I restarted my computer. I thought that was just my computer, but then the same thing happened when I plugged it in to my parent's computer. So I have to take 2 eggs for that....

Good and Bad

scott v., Newegg
11 December 2014
  • Summary: I bought this from a competitor site that shipped from the US.
  • Pros: It works right out of the box, i did not use the cd that came with the dongle but rather i downloaded the newest drivers from the company website. Connected quickly on my desktop and am approx. 25 feet from my router.
  • Cons: After using it, the device seems to lock up my computer to a point where i can only shut down via a power button hold. This is definitely from this device as this is the only thing that has changed in my config and has not happened before. I have also had problems waking from sleep after using th...

Very Unreliable Performance and Range

Armand W., Newegg
24 September 2014
  • Summary: the adaptor is small which is nice. My computer has a top facing USB port that I have inserted the device into, so it faces up and is not obstructed by anything. The router is 10 feet away, behind a standard bedroom wall.
  • Pros: small USB profile
  • Cons: weak signal, poor range, unreliable performance

Small but slow

Jeffrey O., Newegg
22 September 2014
  • Summary: Got this as it was quite a bit smaller than my current Belkin wifi usb, but it's about 1/2 slower. Was worth testing it out, but really too slow for me.
  • Pros: Small
  • Cons: Slow

Meh

Donald W., Newegg
22 September 2014
  • Summary: I have an old computer I'm connecting to my living room TV as a media center, the only problem is this PC didn't have a wireless card. I was hoping this would give me a cheap solution to that problem.
  • Pros: Pros: It functions
  • Cons: Cons: Only adequately under circumstances.
